Kevin Haworth: The Discontinuity of Small Things

(Fiction, 239 pp. 2005)

In 1943 the Danish Resistance smuggled nearly all of the country’s 7,500 Jews across the water to Sweden. This novel explores the lives of a handful of Danes — Jewish and non-Jewish — whose paths cross in unexpected ways, all revealed through the writer’s attention to the small moments of their daily lives under the Nazi occupation.
